Oklahoma State and Oklahoma Supporters Find Common Enemy

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma State booster T. Boone Pickens and former Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer have found something they can agree on: a disdain for the Texas Longhorns.

At a luncheon on Wednesday, Pickens described an email he received from Switzer after Oklahoma had beaten Texas 55-17 earlier this month.

Pickens says Switzer wrote to him suggesting that Oklahoma State shouldn’t “beat them as bad as the Sooners did because we want to keep Mack Brown as coach — we want somebody that both of us can beat.”

Switzer was sitting in the audience and encouraged Pickens to share the story.

Oklahoma State beat Texas 38-26 the following week.

Brown had been 12-0 against the Cowboys until Oklahoma State won in Austin the past two years.
